After breaking records in its debut, "Batman v Superman" has taken a serious hit in its second weekend. Looks like Rotten Tomatoes can make a difference after all.
Taking the No. 1 spot essentially by default, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" brought in an estimated $52 million. And while a $52 million weekend is impressive for most films, unfortunately, this is not most films.
Superhero movies tend to bet big with their budgets and deliver huge weekend numbers, which makes a 68 percent drop in ticket sales a fairly big deal.
Fortunately for Warner Bros., "Dawn of Justice" is performing much better overseas than in the states. After just two weekends in theaters, the foreign box office ticket sales are at $421 million.
With almost $276 million at the domestic box office, this week "Zootopia" has pushed past "Shrek," "Monsters University" and a few others to take the 12th spot on the all-time animation box office list.
As for next week, "Chronicle" meets "Call of Duty." Don't watch this if you're feeling queasy.
